Hello shoryuken, big question. I'm in high school and have been into fighting games ever since I first watched an EVO stream in 2010. I want to start going to tournaments, but I have a few problems that restrict me. There's the fact that im in high school. To make it even worse, my mother HATES my gaming habits, claiming I'm obsessed and play too much even though I can only play on fridays and days off from school. In fact, the only person in my family that is interested in fighting games is my older cousin, who sometimes goes to events. But, how can I start going to tournaments and playing competitively in this sitiuation (playin online can be bs at times, which you should already know).
